Our work with migrant and refugee women

We work with many partners who are supporting refugee and migrant women across Europe and Africa.

At WONDER, we have been supporting migrant and refugee women and girls ever since we became a charity. We do this work with women from many different backgrounds, across many different countries. 

Supporting Ukrainian Refugees in Poland with Pontes Association

Since 2018, WONDER has worked with locally-led Polish organisations to support Ukrainian migrant women in Poland. Following the invasion of Russia in Ukraine, Pontes Association has been supporting thousands of women and their families.

Along with meeting the urgent needs of the women and families fleeing war, they also provide long-term support including Polish lessons, counselling, career guidance, and more.

Encouraging Safe Migration in Nigeria and Côte d’Ivoire

In collaboration with ELIS, WONDER developed a framework to encourage safe migration for women in Nigeria and Côte d’Ivoire who are seeking work and education opportunities abroad. Our partners in these countries now actively educate women on how to recognise legitimate job offers and find pathways for safe migration, in order to reduce their risk of exploitation and trafficking.
